Dolly

Kym and Matt held the house together with nerve and perseverance. The wind tubans blew off the house early in the storm and the water poured into the living room. Kym told me the doors in the car port no longer lock due to 10 hours of severe shaking by the heavy winds and the front bedroom is full of water which came in the windows. We were planning on replacing the windows a little at a time but now we will have to replace at least several of them. John did get a generator ordered and Kym and Matt had to brave the flooded roads to go and pick it up but it has helped some. Kym reported to me that as usual the Necks have the biggest debris pile in the neighborhood. We also may have the most trees. or at least did have the most trees. Kym and Matt are my heros at the present time. They really took care of us. Kym said that it is possible that the electricity may not be back on until after we return home next Tuesday. She will post when she has internet access and tell her tale of Hurricane Dolly.

It was actually Kate who posted that above--and this. (Although I'm sure Neilson seconds the sentiments.) My computer seems to be dead. A subject for another post.

Yes, you guys are heroes. As I sat on jetBlue flying to San Diego, I watched the weather channel and saw the hurricane hit exactly where you were. I am so glad you are ok.

Oops, this is actually Jody, not creid. Funny Kate and I had the same deal. No problems with my computer, just sharing the internet at the hotel.

I received a call from Kym this morning, they have power, phones, cable and internet! She promises to post soon.

This really is Molly

And this really is Trish. I'm glad you both are all right, Kym and Matt - it is so good that you were there. Take care.
